shot and killed martin. martin savidge wraps up the emotional testimony. >> an amazing day to be either in the courtroom or either watching on television. it had always been anticipated that the prosecution would put trayvon martin's mother on the stand but i don't think anyone ever anticipated you would have her and george zimmerman's mother testify in the very same day. >> reporter: just who will the jury believe? grieving mother who lost her youngest son or the mother who stands to see her son possibly spend the rest of his life behind bars. >> what is your -- >> there's gunshots. >> you just heard gunshots? >> yes. >> reporter: sybrina fulton trayvon martin's mother stoically listened to the screams and gunshot the night her son died. then was asked what has become a key question? >> that screaming or yelling, do you recognize that? >> yes. and who do you recognize that to be, ma'am? >> trayvon benjamin martin. >> reporter: hours later gladys zimmerman george's mom listened to the same 911 call and was asked the same question. >> do you know whose voice that was screaming in the bac
. martin savidge sat down with george zimmerman's attorney, mark o'mara, for a one-on-one inter. >> . >> do you think george zimmerman, your client, if he is acquitted, what kind of life will he have? >> not a good one. i think he has to live mostly in hiding. he has to protect himself from that periphery that still believe he's a racist murderer or acted in a bad way, and that you don't know who they are. you don't know if they're down the street or if you don't know if they're across the country. i think that he's probably concerned about living still in central florida and never having a normal life. >> his life will never be the same. >> never, ever. >> never like be able to go to work or have a regular job? >> i don't know how he gets a job where he is out in public without having the fear of somebody finding out where he works. >> to be clear, we asked the state of florida and prosecutors if they would be available to speak with us this week. they declined saying they would speak after the verdict. we also reached out to trayvon martin's family for interviews and they are also waiting
women were seated. i want to play more of martin savidge's interview with you with mark owe mare rar. o'mara. >> let's talk about the makeup of the jury. six women. one person of color and five who are mothers, correct? >> yes. interesting because the jury selection process is very intriguing to me. i enjoy the process. >> that the jury you wanted? >> yes. in this way. when we were going through it, i was surprised that the state struck the first black male that she vuk. they struck. i was surprised by that. they seemed to be moving down the path to get a bunch of white women. and i think that's inappropriate. i challenged them on that. the judge said they were removing white women because they were white women. we went to four and then further down the list. so in my perfect jury, i would like more of a demographic switch. maybe more males. but i'm very okay with the six people that we have now, for reasons that we talked about. i think they're very attentive and listening. >> do you think that maybe a man might take the self-defense, hear that differently than five women or six women,
